The Maplewood Candlelight Ski will again become a reality in 2023. It will be held on Saturday, February 25. Chili will be hot and ready to serve by 5 p.m. and the candles will be lit from 6-8 p.m. 

This event increased in size before the pandemic. It is a great time to get outside in the winter and enjoy the night sky. The 1-mile ski trail will be lit with 150 candles. This evening only, walkers, snowshoers, and skiers will be able to share the trail. So if you don’t ski, you can walk, snowshoe or stand around the campfire, chat with friends, and enjoy hot chili, smores, bars, and hot drinks.  

Maplewood State Park has 12 sets of snowshoes that guests can try out. No skis are available. 

Attendees will Ski Pass if age 16 or older. A $10 daily ski pass is available at the Park or a 1-year ski pass can be purchased for $25.
